My dad’s birthday would have been this Friday, so I opened up the wayback machine – that is, my big box of photos – and pulled out the very first one. I don’t think this is actually our first picture together (no doubt there are a few of those happy-family-in-the-hospital shots somewhere) but it is definitely earliest one I have. And not just of us. Of me – I don’t even have my official just-born mug shot.
Obviously, I have no memories of this photo, so I can’t share the story behind it, other than it’s clearly nap time, for both Dad and me. But looking at this picture – and so many others of the two of us – reminds me that, until just about four years ago, there was never a moment in my life when I wasn’t a daddy’s girl. And I’m not sure I’ll ever be used to the fact that I’m not anymore.
Anyway, enough with the thinking thoughts that are gonna make me cry. Take a look at that sofa! Could it be any more quintessentially 70s?
